A website belonging to Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress has published a plagiarised published manifesto on its website, a check by The Guardian shows.
The first paragraph of the power supply section of the party’s Next Level agenda published on apc.com.ng showed remarkable similarities to the content published on several other websites.
In fact, the section begins with the statement, “Our first priority is keeping America safe and secure,” which indicates that it was copied and not edited before it was published.
The website, which claims to be the “Official Website of All Progressives Congress (APC)”, was first registered on February 7, 2013, and was updated on February 7, 2018, according to whois.net.
The official registrant of the website is listed as All Progressives Congress, its admin named as Shola Erogbogbo and contact email address is listed as email@example.com.
Whois.net lists the billing address of the website as 16, Bissau Street, Zone 5, Abuja and the sponsoring registrar as Web4Africa, a South African information technology company.
Although the website listed in the Twitter bio of the official Twitter handle of the party is officialapcng.com, it is, however, not working when The Guardian checked on Saturday morning.
